A two year hiatus in the rap game is an awful long time considering the fickleness of fans without even considering other factors and elements. With that being said, I had no clue Eternia was away (musically) for that long, I mean I  just peeped her interview (listen HERE) some months ago and she usually pops up on my Instagram feed(I was probably stalking her but that is another story entirely) but it just didn’t occur to me that she hadn’t put out any solo material for that long. Before I digress, ‘Final Offering’ feels like a rebirth to me, a coming to terms with the nature of things and whatnot. As usual Eternia doesn’t disappoint, the bite, the emotions and passion is still present and the ‘Hii Power’ instrumental solidifies the message. The angelic finish by vocalist Phoenix Pagliacci is note worthy as well.

Eternia returns after a two year ‘hiatus’ with an epic verse. Unloading a hailstorm of questions pointed at herself, God, her family, her friends, and her very purpose, ‘Final Offering‘ tackles the lows of life, a topic most people avoid with repression and distractions. Eternia dives in, unafraid to reveal her insecurities and self doubt while challenging the very tenets of faith and foundation of family that she was raised on. She is joined by pHoenix Pagliacci, a burgeoning triple-threat in the Canadian music scene, who soars on this track with a poignant reminder to Eternia, and anyone else who is experiencing similar lows, of what “Hii Power” really is.

Director Alex Narvaez (a.k.a. The Can Con Don) contributes a docu-style moving landscape to the raw vulnerability of Eternia’s delivery & content. Doubling as a tribute to Toronto’s historic Kensington Market, Narvaez paints the symbolic picture of Eternia as isolated and alone. But as the chorus uplifts the song, Eternia is joined by a ‘female voltron’: empowered by a support network of talented women who know their own power & purpose, reminding her of her own.
